As the Nation wait in eager expectation  of the results of the National election results which took place on Satuday, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has disclosed that in no time, the next winner of 2019 presidential election would be announced.

Yakubu said: “Work continues; I am inviting all you who are accredited, at 6pm, to please come to the national collation centre.

“There will be a formal inauguration and it is from there, hopefully in the not too distant future, the commission will make a formal declaration of who the next President of the Federal republic of Nigeria is.”
